This vase was made by Kupittaa in Finland, and while the shape was used as early as the mid 1920s, based on clay color and marking style, this example is more likely from the 1930s.. It's like a brown version of the Geranium glaze from Royal Haeger or similar glazes from Red Wing around the same time. The ripply, rumpled body is fun and unusual, but it's the glaze that's most impressive. All in all, it's a great piece of Scandinavian mid century modern pottery.
You may notice that we don't have a checkout where you can just click for your goodies without so much as saying hello. Well, we want people to say hello, ask questions, even hope for a better deal. Long ago, I told stories for 7 hours (free refills on coffee), so "impersonal" just isn't my style. Click on one of those "E-mail" buttons. I can't handle as much coffee as I used to, so the stories will be fewer.
These days, Paypal is about the easiest payment method around, but we still take checks, even cash. No Monopoly money, nothing printed up in your basement, no chickens, etc., but otherwise we're fairly flexible. If we can put it in the bank without anyone getting in a tizzy, we'll probably take it.
Please take time to stroll through the site. Sorry we can't offer you a cup of coffee or tea while you're looking, but maybe you can take care of that yourself. Just don't spill it on the keyboard. And if you run into any questions along the way, there should be an e-mail link on every page, so just click and ask.
Hope you'll enjoy our "sing the body eclectic" approach (with apologies to Walt Whitman). As always, proceeds go to support our creditors, my spouse, our cats, my auction addiction, and the plumbing project that never ends.West German Pottery Page One Glass For Sale Art Pottery and Porcelain Paintings, Prints, Etc.
